All the Flavor of an Heirloom--in Cherry Size!

Begins fruiting early and just keeps going!
72 days from setting out transplants. Indeterminate.

For full-bodied flavor that captures the old-fashioned "tomato essence" so sadly lacking in many modern varieties, rely on Sunsugar! This golden-yellow cherry packs terrific tomato "tang" as well as a high sugar content into every small fruit. The result is the best eating you'll ever have from a cherry tomato!

Just ½-ounce each, these rounded fruits appear in large, luscious clusters all over a very vigorous vining plant. They ripen earlier than most other tomatoes, turning from green to yellow and finally rich shades of golden. Despite thin skins, they are quite crack-resistant, so you can let them mature on the plant fearlessly!

Sunsugar's name is a bit misleading, because although this cherry certainly has high quantities of sugar (it scores 10 to 11 on the Brix scale), it's the mixture of sugar and acidic tomato "tang" that really makes it distinctive. This is a tomato lover's tomato, packed with rich and complex flavor. Our expectations of cherry tomatoes are pretty low -- those in the supermarket are often thick-skinned and essentially tasteless -- and Sunsugar effortlessly redefines the family! Cherries CAN be flavorful and exciting -- Sunsugar shows them how!

This plant reaches 5 to 6 feet high and about 3 feet wide, sometimes continuing to grow and set new fruit into autumn. It is very heavy-bearing all season, a great choice for large families and tomato lovers everywhere! We highly recommend it for flavor and great yields!

Start the seeds indoors 5 to 6 weeks before the last frost date. Plant outdoors when danger of frost is past and night temperatures consistently remain above 55 degrees F. If an unexpected late frost is forecasted, protect young plants with plastic sheeting or other cover. Set plants 2 to 2½ feet apart. Pkt is 250 seeds.
